Welcome to Avalon

The Music Library uses Avalon to provide access to streaming audio and video collections for the Library. Some content is only available when you sign in. Sign in with your UCLA authentication for use both on and off campus. Avalon currently holds thousands of recordings from the Music Library, Arts Library, East Asian Library and Young Research Library. Use the search box, or browse using the terms on the left side to discover content. We add recordings every week. Recent additions from the Music Library’s collections include Southern California Punk CDs, Los Angeles Hip Hop CDs, Bollywood DVDs, and some of our most used CDs. You can listen and watch via Avalon and also find links in the Library Catalog to individual Avalon recordings. You can request that we add a recording from our circulating collections. Send any request via email with the Call Number for the recording.

Avalon content is restricted to UCLA users and requires additional UCLA authentication for use both on and off campus via the "LOGIN" link.
